I Hate Running, I Love Running, I Hate Running.....

I have never done anything in my life that I have had such a love hate relationship with.  I hate running.  I really, truly do.  But, the more I do it, the more I love to hate it and love it all at once.  Confused yet?  Good, because I am too.

I will be honest, if my husband wasn't doing this with me, I definitely wouldn't still be running, so thank you, God, for him!  I was running today with him, and he always pushes me to my best.  I ran with him today, and felt like I really struggled and went so slow!  But then thanks to my trusty RunKeeper software, I got done and realized I blew my last 5k time out of the water.

And then I felt on top of the moon and was happy as can be.  In the middle of running, I am not a happy camper, but the second I am done - woohoo!  I can't be the only one that feels like this, right?

A New Venture!

Ok, so yeah, I know, I don't post nearly as often as I should.  LOL!  Do I start every post like that, or what?  I am still running, I am still working on being a better me.  I am working full time as an ad rep for the local newspaper/magazine and I am in the process of training for a my first half marathon.  Since we (my husband, friends and I) completed that first 5K at the Mankato Marathon last fall, we''ve completed 3 more 5ks, a 7k and are now just 2 weeks away from our first half marathon.  

On June 1st, we will be running our very first half marathon at the Minneapolis Marathon.  I never could have accomplished something like this without the support of my friends and my family, and especially my husband. I cannot begin to tell you how impossible this all would have been without him.  He's my rock, my inspiration, my everything!  He runs faster than I do, and I don't care.  He's always there to catch me at the end, and that's all that matters.

24 Day Challenge Kit
My kids have been amazingly supportive too, but that's nothing new, they always have been.  They are such awesome people!  My newest inspiration comes from middle child, Conor.  He introduced me to Advocare products over the last couple of years, and I have fallen in love and finally decided to take the plunge and become a distributor!  I am very excited about it.  They make amazing sports nutrition products and I am so excited to have joined the company.  

My daughter, Cassidy, and I are going to be doing the 24 day challenge starting on June 2nd.  I am VERY excited to get another jumpstart on this healthy lifestyle and cleanse my body!  Want to know more?  Or join us?  Contact me for more info!  Here's some basic info on what the 24 day challenge is all about!  Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have too.
